Ingeo Company History
Founded in June 1996, Ingeo was established to help government agencies use digital map technology to manage information and resources. The company's name was derived from an abbreviation of intelligent geography.
In 1999, Ingeo decided to further focus its efforts on software solutions for county governments. This niche was identified after county recorders voiced a definite need for cost-effective electronic automation. Fueled by the passage of state (UETA) and federal (E-SIGN) legislation that paved the way for the legal acceptance of digital signatures and supporting technologies, as well as the automation of the recording process, Ingeo created its Electronic Document Recording System, which facilitates the electronic creation, transmission, and recording of legal land records.
